Introduction: Kerosene to Propane Generator Conversion-Cheap and Easy
I have yamaha kerosene generator since kerosene is hardly to get, so I experimenting to use gas (propane). And it works.
It don't need any changes on the carburator so if there is no propane gas, I can still use kerosene or gasoline.
And it only cost around $15.
Step 1: What We Need
for this convertion we only need 3 main component.
- high pressure gas regulator
- gas hose
- gas valve (like the one in the picture)
tool: only drill
Step 2: Set Up the Position for Gas Valve
The gas valve will be place aline with the carburator.
Step 3: Now Use Our Drill
Use our drill to make a hole at the air filter cover and air filter honeycomb.
Step 4: Cut the Valve Pipe
use iron saw to cut the pipe on the gas valve, to adjust (if it necessary)
Step 5: Put It Back in Order
Now we can put it back in order.
Step 6: Start You Engine
We have to open the gas valve slowly so it will give the right mount of gas.
After it start, try to open and close the gas valve to get engine stationary stage.
Always run the generator on open air or in good ventilation.
The gas will not automatically shutdown when the engine stop running.
Have a nice experiment.
